Christmas Snowflake Cards

This card is sort of a twofer ggggggggg

You have 2 options....create a Snowflake Card or add the Western Santa for a Santa Card




RECIPE:

6X12 WHITE LINEN CARDSTOCK BASE
6X6 PIECE OF WHITE 3M POST-IT ADHESIVE CRAFT PAPER
GLITTER
SMALL PIECES OF COLORED 3M POST-IT ADHESIVE CRAFT PAPER - FOR SANTA
MARTHA STEWARD WHITE GLITTER GLUE - FOR SANTAS BEARD AND MUSTACHE
MARTHA STEWARD BLUE GLITTER GLUE - FOR SANTAS EYES

OPTIONAL:  INK AND INK PAD TO STAMP SENTIMENT INSIDE CARD

DIRECTIONS

START WITH YOUR 6X12 BASE CARDSTOCK AND FOLD IN HALF

NEXT I CUT THE SNOWFLAKE THAT WAS DOWNLOADED FROM PENNY DUNCAN (THANKS PENNY!) AT SIZE 5 INCHES ON WHITE 6X6 PIECE OF 3M POST-IT CRAFT PAPER

ONCE CUT I REMOVED THE BACKING AND SPRINKLED ON MY ULTRA FINE GLITTER...3M POST-IT CRAFT PAPER MAKES THIS PROCESS SO EASY!

I THEN RUN THE SNOWFLAKE THROUGH MY XYRON TO PUT ADHESIVE ON THE BACK TO STICK TO MY CARD BASE

FOR THE SNOWFLAKE CARD THAT COMPLETES IT EXCEPT FOR PUTTING YOUR SENTIMENT INSIDE


OK NOW FOR THE SANTA PART...I TOOK JUST SMALL PIECES JUST LARGE ENOUGH TO DO EACH OF THE INDIVIDUAL CUTS FROM COLORED 3M POST-IT CRAFT PAPER...PEELED THE BACKING OFF AND LAYERED ON

FOR HIS BEARD, MUSTACHE AND EYEBROWS I USED THICK AMOUNT OF MARTHA STEWARDS WHITE GLITTER GLUE TO GIVE A TEXTURED EFFECT

I USED SMALL AMOUNT OF BLUE MARTHA STEWARDS GLITTER GLUE FOR HIS EYES

HERE IS A CLOSE UP OF HOW HE LOOKS.....THINKING MY BASE COLOR INSTEAD OF BLACK I SHOULD HAVE USED A DARD BEIGE......OH WELL THE KIDS WILL LIKE IT ANYWAY :o)



HOPE YOU LIKED THEM!
